Backstage Wars!

OMG well I must be doing something right. Last night at the backstage interview of So You Think You Can Dance I was watching the show in the press room, then had to run down and set up my camera …to get a good space on the press line, then came back up and watched…

Beauty comes in all sizes, not just a 5!

It was pointed out to me a few days ago, that a female aussie breakfast radio host by the name of Jackie O (aka Henderson) from KiisFM, made certain comments on air about HER definition of beauty, claiming she was “better looking” than Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell and me, Ajay Rochester – curvy girl, single…

Could Nigel Lythgoe have cancer?

Does Nigel Lythgoe have thyroid cancer?  This is not the article I expected to write after watching So You Think You Can Dance last week.

Help me find my father

Twenty one  years ago today, my best friend knocked on my door and told me my birth mum had died. She’d been “gone” for a few days before anyone realized/found her (that in itself is very sad). You never know when someone’s time is up, so treasure it while you have it. I had 18 months…

Dance like everyone is watching…….

I’m not racing with anyone….I’m not on a mission to lose x amount of kilos in x amount of weeks….I’m on a mission to be the healthiest and happiest I have been no matter what I weigh, which ironically seems to have a great little side effect of whittling away the excess pounds, a little…

Priceless life-lessons in anti bullying

Everyone knows I can’t stand bullies. Especially the ones who hide behind their computers and say whatever they want without ever fully understanding the true impact of what they say. The other day I was having a little pat myself on the back moment on my facebook page where I recounted how four years ago…

The mate you’ve always needed!

How many times, just as guests were about to walk in the door have you realized you were missing that one vital ingredient to cook that killer meal that was going to get you that promotion? Or as a single mom, I can’t tell you how many times I have run out of milk, nappies,…

Survivor – Winner may not take it all

This is it….one week until the finale of another successful season of Survivor on CBS, which we will be covering from the red carpet for Reality Wanted. And as far as I can see the only people still standing, who have actually played “the game” are Spencer and Tony, which if the game was won…
